What is this thing?


Kathy Strabel
 

Hello Janome Group--  Does anyone know what this thing is? The picture is taken of a Skyline 7 model, from the backside of the machine, and with the accessory tray removed. Located just underneath the tip of the pencil in the photo. It has a groove or slot in it, like for a standard screwdriver, not a Phillips head. Just wondering. I do not see this thing pointed out in the manual, nor any information about it.  It is stationary, does not push inwards. I am guessing it has something to do with the construction phase of the machine itself--maybe some sort of fastener to hold everything together?  Or a support for the accessory tray?? I would definitely NOT try to use a tool of any kind on it, but am curious as to its purpose.   Photo attached herein.
Thanks, Kathy S. Camas WA

It is a support to the extension table if one is purchased.

I wonder if it supports the accessory tray. My 15000 has one and it appears to be independent of my embroidery unit. Maybe?

Hello Janome Group----Thank you to those that replied to my inquiry about the silver "button" on the rear surface of the Skyline 7  machine. It appears to be a support for an optional wide table which I do not possess. Instead, I have an after-market, 3rd party extension table. But it is good to know, at least, what the silver thingy is intended for. Happy sewing and stitching to all!   Kathy Strabel   Camas   WA.
